The premier edition of the Backroad Mapbook for Manitoba! Inside this guidebook, you will find the most comprehensive outdoor recreation resource available for this provcince. Discover this land of diversity, from its Precambrian shield to desert-like sands, and everything in between.
As you travel north and south along the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border you will find rolling prairies, along with Riding Mountain National Park and all of it's treasures. Over 900 beautiful lakes, forests, and wildlife make this park a four-season destination to be enjoyed. The Trans-Canada Highway travels east through Manitoba's rolling plains to the flat terrain around Winnipeg, where you truly can see forever. As you get closer to the Ontario border you reach the Precambrian shield area, with rock outcroppings, pine forests, and opportunities to enjoy the wilderness.
Winnipeg, the province's capital city, is home to over half of Manitoba's population. The rest of the region is made up of large towns and small cities, including Brandon, the province's second-largest city with a mere 40,000 people. You will find many backroad attractions and recreational opportunities in these numerous settlements. Because the population centers around Winnipeg, it has the largest number of well developed recreational opportunities nearby. With Lake Winnipeg, Canada's sixth largest lake, less than an hour's drive there are numerous facilities for visitors ranging from the world-famous fine white silica sand beaches in Grand Beach Provincial Park, to the windsurfing opportunities at Winnipeg Beach Provincial Park, found on the opposite side of the lake.
There are opportunities to get back to nature as well, with Whiteshell Provincial Park and Nopiming Provincial Park only an hour or two away from Winnipeg. Whether it is fishing, paddling, ATVing, snowmobiling, or bird watching, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the wilderness.
Manitoba Backroad Mapbook is much more than a set of maps it is an explorer's guide.
